Grand Palace @ 6th Floor Pavilion

From all the news that have been hovering around this year, i must admit i should be rather careful with estimating how much cough syrup i drink from the bottle (as opposed to pouring out from the spoon).

You never know, sip abit too much and never wake up. In my case, i am just an awakened zombie.

---

The concept of Pavilion 6th Floor was to have higher end restaurants to cater for well, i suppose the higher ups. Problem is, Malaysians being malaysians, they tend to eat anything they see on sight which means one that would like to see what 6th Floor can offer would have to ignore the parade of restaurants right from the lowest floor to the highest floor.

Needless to say, the crowd on the 6th floor can be rather thin.

A few restaurants have come and gone and Grand Palace have replaced Li Jin.

The same people who came up with the "Palace" theme i.e. Jaya Palace and Imbi Palace, theres now Grand Palace.

Looking rather grand from the outside, we decided to venture for some dim sum.

I know technically speaking "roast pork aka siew yuk" is not very dim sum like, but how can one resist when they tell you it is their signature dish? Indeed the roast pork was marvellous.

On weekends, they have a counter serving out an array of claypot dishes like the black vinegar trotter and beef tendons. The vinegar was seriously thick black and apparently the blacker the better!

Another speciality, the mash sweet potato puff, the puff crumbles from the slightest bite and invites you to some creamy and not overly sweet filling.

You got chao lo bak koh too.

Some steam delights too.

Generally a nice place to eat some non halal dim sum before a good run of shopping (and you will need all the calories because i can predict some crazy Christmas shopping).

Can't wait to try dinner here.

Address and contact details:

6th Floor Pavilion

Will find the contact number, the next time i am there.

Till then, i think i need to rest my brain, it is currently facing a drought as opposed to the floodings that has been happening recently.
